Puppy Preschool

The aim of puppy preschool is to help owners teach their puppy to become a well mannered and happy member of the family using positive reward based training methods. It is also an excellent opportunity for your puppy to socialise with other puppies and people in a safe, controlled environment. 

Classes are held on MONDAY and WEDNESDAY evenings at 7pm in the reception area at Stephen Terrace Veterinary Clinic. Each programme runs for 5 weeks. Your first class will be a 90 minute information session without your puppy. Weeks 2-5 are 60 minute sessions packed with practical tips, hands on instruction and expert guidance for every individual puppy. Your instructor provides weekly homework to optimise your understanding and outcome by graduation in Week 5.
